As asked in the title: Are Power Play rating bonuses cumulative?

For instance, rating 1 gives a weekly bonus of 1000 credits, rating 2 gives a weekly bonus of 50000 credits, so do I get 51000 credits bonus when I have rating 2? The same goes for preparation nominations and Power commodity allocations.

Another example: Rating 3 for Aisling Duval provides access to Prismatic Shield Generators, but this bonus is not mentioned anymore in the description for rating 4 and 5. So does this mean that I can still buy Prismatic Shield Generators when I move from rating 3 to rating 4 (cumulative) or do I lose that bonus (which would be extremely weird, IMO, but would be along the lines of non-cumulative bonuses).

When moving up ranks, all previous bonuses of the same type are overridden by similar bonuses of your new rank. So your weekly bonus of 1000 credits at Rating 1 will be overridden by Rating 2's 50000 weekly credit bonus. The same goes for preparation nominations and Power commodities. Every Rating above 3 will have access the unique module.

  • I thought as much, just wanted to be sure. Good explanation, by the way, using the term "override" (from a programmer's point of view) :-)
